EBAY Description:

This buggy was sort of a functional art study for me. Shooting for a late 60's/early 70's drag buggy look from the flake gelcoat to the candy colored psychedelic flames and pin striping and gold leaf lettering, it all adds up to a vintage racer that never really was! Building and driving this little car was a blast but I need cash for the next project, so the buggy needs a new owner! Is that you?!
